VIDEO: Greek Islanders Burn Down UN Migrant Reception Center

The people of Lesbos have had it with migrants pouring onto their island.

Published

Citizens of the Greek Island of Lesbos burned down a United Nations migrant reception center on their island Sunday amidst a wave of illegal immigrants arriving from Turkey.

Lesbos is located in the Aegean Sea, just miles away from the territory of Turkey. The island has been besieged by arrivals of migrant boats, filled with Middle Eastern refugees seeking to seek asylum in the European Union.

Video of the event showed a UN facility aflame.

Reports on the incident reveal that the migrant facility was empty and no one was injured in its destruction by the locals. It’s possible that the Greek islanders hoped to avoid the UN from using the facility to house even more migrants from Turkey, as the large populations of those hoping to seek asylum in Europe have proven detrimental to quality of life and public resources on the island.

Residents of the island are also staging large-scale protests against the mass arrival of dubious ‘refugees.’ The island’s daily life has been radically altered by intermittent arrival of Middle Eastern refugees on dinghies for years.

New inflows of migrants have been unleashed by Turkey in recent days, with the nation’s Islamist Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan hoping to punish European nations for their reaction to his country’s military intervention in Turkey.

Migrants are massing on the nation’s continental European border with Greece. They had previously been prevented from traveling to Turkey’s European territory under an agreement between Turkey and the EU, which provided funding for Turkey to house the migrants and so-called refugees in return for halting their movement.

The Greek Army has been deployed along with local police in preparation for attempts by migrants to cross the border en masse.

Should the situation grow in magnitude, we could soon be witnessing a repeat of the destabilizing and chaotic movements of people into Europe seen in 2015. Such a development would represent a failure of European governments to deliver the basic border security and national sovereignty demanded by their citizens, who began to vote for populist political movements shortly after the massive migrant arrivals of 2015.

Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts

The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.

Published

on

The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.

In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”

Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”

The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:

After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.

Toccalini concluded:

Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.

Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
